JIMBOX Kewl story-

I'm sure, that when you were done--you told the Engineer, that you'd be glad to help him, if his little train ever got stuck !!

I mean, you owe him one --right ??

Heh Heh, my dad worked for Southern Pacific, from the 1930s thru the 1960s, in Portland, Oregon-

jebby best ive heard in a long time

dan188 that is a great story... the only thing that would have been better was if the train hooked up to your jeep and COULDN't get you out.... I am picturing the engineer yelling down "Hey buddy, um, I'm giving it full throttle and my train ain't movin'. WTF did you get stuck in!" haha.

jgano23 not too many people can say they've been pulled out of a hole by a train...
02-10-2011 07:11 AM
Mac2411 Great story! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can . . .

Vroooom Dang....

That little ole train did that without a lift-kit, recovery hoops, winch or even a light-bar.

I dont see it being possible, myself.


(research: sarcasm LOL)

Tommy2Times Wow, that's awesome! After several beers that's going to be hard not to make my own story! Lol!

Anschutz Wow. I think if a train can't pull you out just kick some dirt over the top and report it stolen.
02-03-2011 03:43 PM

The train was actually stopped just barely insight of the Jeep. They saw us from a distance & pulled the train up to where we were with the intention of running us off. Once they saw the predicament that I was in they offered a hand.

It greatly helped that my dad had actually trained the engineer who was running the train that day. In his words, "I'll either pull you out or I'll pull you in half."

HokieStu Xjman1 - I've got one of those pics on my office wall, when people ask about it, I tell them about the time I had to pull a coal train with my Jeep.
01-07-2011 06:17 PM
Xjman1 Bet the train was struggling. LOL
01-07-2011 05:07 PM
IndyJeepMan That is awesome! NO ONE prolly can say they were recovered by the biggest heaviest land vehicle ever!! Usually trains don't go where people Jeep, but you sir were lucky. Send that in the Robertsons Offroad, or Offroad Adventures! And mention the Wranglerforum
